Re: Here's another joke

If Syndergaard hit Utley - or if any Met's pitcher hits Utley....ever - he's getting tossed regardless.

Particularly now that the umps are getting info before each game as to possible "situations".

Re: Here's another joke

It was not a dirty slide. Aggressive - yes. Dirty - no.

In my opinion (and the opinion of others, including several on this Board), it was a dirty slide because Utley could not even touch the base as he took a path totally intended to [more]

Here's another joke

Syndegaard threw behind Chase Utley -- came nowhere near hitting him. The home plate umpire then ejected Thor from the game. No warning. Just an ejection.

I know that everyone knows that Utely made a dirty slide and broke Tejada's leg [more]

Re: Win/Loss

Brian Kenney has been going nuts about this situation for years...

He's not the only one. The "win" designation is a joke.

Re: Win/Loss

There is a fine line between getting someone some work in a game that was already in the bag and losing him for when you really need him.

Gary Cohen made a comment last night suggesting that Collins probably figured that with Thor [more]

Win/Loss

Yesterday deGrom pitched 7 very good innings, allowed one run and left the game with the Mets winning 5-1. For the top of the 9th, Collins put in Familia even though it was not a save situation.

Now Familia has been great - 16 saves in 16 [more]

How upright of you to acknowledge that YOUR question to me ("Why did you quote some inane tidbit of 'Stupid Science' in the first place?") was "querulous and specious"!

Re: Thor Syndergaard

But when an AL teams visits an NL team, they have to make their pitcher try to hit.

This supports my theory that ALL pitchers should learn how to hit! It can be done.

Re: Thor Syndergaard

But there is more than one amazing pitcher in the MLB right now, so to "hammer" home the point, the pantheon would want to throw in some other superpower, like a long ball. How about a great pitcher who can hit a home run? Not enough, [more]
